Bio

As each of us drifts down the oft-winding river called life, we realize how little control we have. We can fight and try to paddle upstream, but ultimately, we give in and try to enjoy the journey.

Currents is a Los Angeles-area rock group that came together inspired by that knowledge and its application to music, their life's passion. Bassist Dylan Schleifstein explains, "Music is an unseen force that flows in all different directions, taking us along for the ride, and we decided to name our band after it."

With three members having played together in a previous band (guitarist/singer John Alaimo, bassist Dylan Schleifstein, and drummer Mike Thomas), they went in search of a frontman to complete Currents' lineup. They recruited longtime friend Joe Sherman, formerly of Take Notice (I Surrender Records).

After completing their lineup, Currents headed into the studio to track their debut record, which was produced by Justin Powell (The Cab) and mixed by Kyle Black (Pierce the Veil, Set Your Goals, All Time Low). With the song "L is for Lush," Sherman brought some of his personal experiences to the record. "The last relationship I was in was a tough one. You can try as hard as you can to help someone with their demons, but when they keep pushing you away, you realize that it's time to walk away," he explains.

However, the entire record isn't just a hard look at reality; as Sherman explains. "When we were finishing the record, we decided we wanted to do something totally different, so 'What Big Teeth You Have' is our retelling of Little Red Riding Hood from the wolf's point of view."

Wherever their journey takes them, from reality to fantasy and everywhere in between, the members of Currents are career musicians--Thomas is a classically-trained piano and drum teacher and the other members have had experience on the business side of the industry.
